In May 2018, A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products held their Annual Football Tournament in aid of The Great North Air Ambulance Service.
Ten teams were entered, with players from various sectors of the A.W. Jenkinson Group (including Transport, Farms, Garages, and numerous teams from the Head Office), all from several different depots around the county, with a great day had by all.
The Final match saw the mixed male and female team from ‘The Clifton Weighbridge’ play ‘The A.W. Jenkinson Transport Team’, with the Weighbridge taking home the trophy on the day for the second year in a row.
Fortunately, there were no major injuries during the tournament, with only a few grazed knees by the end of the day.
The event raised an impressive amount for the GNAAS Charity, with special thanks to A&A Recycling Limited for their generous donation and to The Penrith Leisure Centre for use of two of their five-a-side pitches for the entire day.
We look forward to the next event in 2019.
